HERALD ISLAND HOME

Herald Island, New Zealand

This was my very first project upon returning to NZ. My clients had purchased a waterfront piece of land on Herald Island, and the architectural plans were the mirror image of the property next door. They asked me to introduce a point of difference, and a wow factor.

I had complete freedom to use my imagination in developing the design concept. Besides specifying exterior and interior colour and finishes, I designed a full lighting plan, the kitchen, bespoke balustrades, and custom-made vanities and mirrors for the three bathrooms. I also designed the layout of the wall and floor tiles.

The Master Ensuite was a Finalist in the NZ House & Garden Best Interior Awards.

‘I rate Donna very highly. She is great on ideas and pushing out boundaries. Donna introduced creative elements to the house, especially in our bathrooms and kitchen, which have set the house apart from others.’  Homeowner
